Cracks, bulges and leaks have been found in weld-o-let connections that were installed in high-pressure steam lines. Creep has been known as one of failure mechanisms associated with cracks on the weld-o-let connections. A success of weld repairing of the creep-damaged connections strongly relies on how well the creep-damaged material is removed. The FE (finite element) model was developed to predict the creep damage on the weld-o-let connections. Omega creep model and time fraction damage model were incorporated. The developed FE model successfully explained why cracks were found on the outer surface of saddle point in most of the connections. The results of creep analyses were successfully incorporated into development of a weld repair plan of the creep damaged connections.
